The Galway Film Fleadh Announces Closing Night Film!

The Galway Film Fleadh Announces Closing Night Film! «Shadow Dancer» is a 2012 film directed by James Marsh, and written by Tom Bradby , starring Clive Owen, Gillian Anderson, Aidan Gillen and Andrea Riseborough.

The closing film at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh, which runs from Tuesday, 10th July until Sunday, 15th July, is Shadow Dancer. Directed by James Marsh, the cast includes Andrea Riseborough (Made in Dagenham, Never Let Me Go), Clive Owen (Children of Men, Inside Man, Sin City), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones, The Dark Knight Rises, The Wire), Domhnall Gleeson (True Grit, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Gillian Anderson (The Last King of Scotland, X-Files).

Shadow Dancer tells the story of Collette McVeigh, a Republican living in Belfast with her mother and hardliner IRA brothers. When she is arrested for her part in an aborted IRA bomb plot in London, an MI5 officer named Mac offers her a choice: lose everything and go to prison for 25 years or return to Belfast to spy on her own family. With her son’s life in her hands, Collette chooses to place her trust in Mac and return home, but when her brothers’ secret operation is ambushed, suspicions of an informant are raised and Collette finds both herself and her family in grave danger. Shadow Dancer is a finely crafted, intelligently acted political thriller/drama with a complexity, subtlety, and depth that immediately recalls the recent Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
